I have both the HC30 head light and the EC23 handheld. Both are awesome lights. The switches work differently on the two lights and it took me some getting used to but the ability to jump from any brightness directly to turbo when you need it really comes in handy on the EC23. You can't go wrong with Nitecore. My advice is to go ahead and pick up rechargeable 18650 batteries and a charger and don't worry with the CR123s.
